Feedback for Exemptions and Exclusions Under the Employment Standards Act

Pharmacy Technician  ·  Nov. 28, 2017

I believe these exemptions should be discontinued. I think that the job of a pharmacist is important and in the way most pharmacy workflow runs, they are the last line of defense to ensure errors do not occur. I don't see how we can expect a pharmacist to think clearly after a 9+ hour shift with not a single break or note to eat. I have always thought it isn't right that these exemptions apply to such an important professional. I believe it comprises the safety and efficacy of most pharmacies out there. I have worked in 2 pharmacies, one where they apply the exemptions and one where they don't. I can honestly say in my experience that the pharmacy where they allow pharmacists to have food breaks to sit down (are always available to be interrupted if needed) there is far less (if any at all) errors happening in the pharmacy.
